On 6-7 October, the European Union and UNDP, in partnership with Lagodekhi Municipality, are organizing the “People & Planet” event in the town of Lagodekhi, the Kakheti region of Georgia.
With a focus on young people and rural residents, People & Planet aims to raise public awareness about human rights, promote the principles of equality and inclusion, drive local climate action, and cultivate widespread support for Georgia’s European aspirations.
Additionally, the event will serve as a platform to underscore the substantial support provided by the European Union to Georgia and its citizens, showcasing several flagship EU-funded initiatives undertaken in partnership with UNDP.
The “People & Planet” event is designed around a series of interactive and engaging activities that convey a compelling message about the role of individual and collective efforts in shaping a sustainable society centered around the best interests of both people and the planet. It brings together decision-makers, local communities, representatives from civil society, and the private sector while placing a special emphasis on the active involvement of young people in shaping the future of their country.
On Friday, the event will start with human rights talks around the right to education. You will be able to enjoy some games during the afternoon. A puppet theater on personal data protection will mark the end of the day. A paralympic sport’s game will then be held on Saturday.
